    I honestly don't think I've ever seen a guy that changes direction as fast as this kid. And he never seems to go down like a smurf, the little guy is hard to tackle. Would definitely like to see him stay healthy next year and get used a lot more.

      He needs to learn when to cut his losses and turn N/S and get what you can. That being said, he has some sick ankle breaking moves. He needs more touches on slants and crossing routes where he gets the ball in space, and a couple of jukes is 6 points.

        I've said this before and he did it last night earlier, he always has at least one "WTF is he doing!?!?" moment each game.

          While his ability to cut is almost other worldly, he never looks particularly fast to me. Is this some kind of allusion due to his running style or is he quick rather fast?

              You're right, if anything he tends to try and turn a play that isn't going anywhere into a highlight reel touchdown. Maybe if he got the ball more than twice a game he wouldn't act so desperate. Its like he thinks every time he touches the ball might be his only chance to score.

                I think what's hindering him here is that both Hammond and Swain are seniors and have been pretty sure-handed pass catchers. Toney can sometimes drop something he should catch because he's looking around to see who he can juke. But I absolutely agree that if he's our guy in the slot next year, we'll see a lot more plays similar to Swain's TD vs Auburn.

                            reminds me of a Leno joke when Bill Gates got married:

                            “Micro and soft are two things you don’t want to hear on your wedding night.”

                              #1 had an electric evening starting with the 47-yard run that went from one side of the field to the other. The option toss that was dropped was beautifully thrown, too. Even the punt return late in the game had fans holding their breath.

                              Toney isn’t just shifty and fast, he can be a bit of a load at 5-11, 190.

                                  There were a few plays last night where the clowns just looked silly. This was one of them where he had them colliding into each other and the Pitts play where he made two guys take each other out.

                                    The run late in the game was right in front of the alumni section and he literally ripped up the turf when he cut back. The run didn’t go as far as we all wanted too but everyone was talking about it. The piece of turf ripped like a cheap Berber carpet and just hung there as evidence of that juke. Kid is special.

                                      He's a long strider, so he doesn't look all that fast. Don't be fooled - he's FAST.

                                        He literally jacked an FSU player's knee up due to his ability to cut. I have been pretty vocal about my disdain toward's Toney's East-West antics but I am really starting to get over it. He can be a drive killer like I think he did on his first touch ... but every touch after that he friggin lit it up. I am looking forward to him getting the ball next year. I hope coach kinda looks at how KC uses Hill.

                                          I spent the first 15 minutes of this game pacing and yelling, and the rest of the time laughing my azz off. Toney's run was hilarious the clowns were grabbing air as he zig-zagged thru them, and I'm thinking How the hell is this guy still standing up? He's gonna be fun to watch next year

                                                Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
